moving forward with gun control measures but at the federal level it seems like a tough sell. harry reid doubts such a measure to ban assault weapons would get through the house. what does that mean for national gun control laws? are we at a stalemate? >> i don't believe we are. it comes down to what are we going to be able to get bipartisan support for in the congress? and there are three things that i believe are possible to get across the aisle support. my major focus has been since january 8th on mental health services and awareness and i'll be dropping a bill today that will move in that direction called the mental health first aid act so that's one thing that i believe is possible. there seems to be some cross unanimity across the aisle on mental health services and my bill will hopefully be one of the first steps in that direction. >> you met with vice president biden as part of a task force convened by the president. the vice president was supposed to deliver his recommendations today to the president, but he delayed that. why the holdup? >> i'm not sure i could tell you why the
have the senate. go ahead, harry reid, bring it up for a vote. are you in favor of all president obama's recommendations? pass it through the senate first and let the house do it. that would be interesting if he does that. i think he was an nra backed candidate, too,be if i'm not mistaken. >> greg: do i have time to throw to the sot? we're doing it in the next block? great to be back. >> dana: people talking to you in your head. >> greg: it's happening again. i have to get out of here. coming up, should a reality show that features one father who has 11 kids with ten different women called beckel be on television? we told you about --be go ahead. >> two boys, you know, take responsibility. you can hate all you want to. i didn't ask for it. i just happened. >> greg: we told you about "all my babies' mommas" last weekbe but the network changed its mind about the show. tragically. we'll tell you what they have planned ahead. ♪ ♪ >> announcer: meet jill. she thought she'd feel better after seeing her doctor. and she might have, if not for kari, the identity thief stole jill's social se
. harry reid one of them. "b." ten others received "a" by the nra. kimberly, if the people are getting "as" and "b"s by the nra do you think they will vote to change the constitution in the way president obama wants them to? >> kimberly: absolutely not. the nra poke the cage and super mad. this is all out war. they are not taking it sitting down. tremendous support. record number of people joining, giving money. look at the number of gun sales, ammunition sales. everything that is going on. thaw have this in their respect. if they want to hold on to the position, they have to tread carefully. >> bob: the same nra that used obama's children disgustingly. max baucus, i did his first campaign for the united states senate. he is from montana. i understand -- >> kimberly: did he win? >> bob: obviously, he wouldn't be up there. >> kimberly: you brought him in? >> bob: i did. that is not the point. baucus will vote against more than ten bullets in the clip. >> dana: they will never have a chance to vote on it. >> eric: i 100%, 1,000% agree. i don't think reid has the cojones to bring it to the se
they all attended, they would have joined not only nancy prksz pelosi and harry reid but tommy lee jones. as tip o'neil said, love the sinner, hate the sin. we need to get back to a time when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neil. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here's hoping that it sill it spills over to the next four years. both sides become more social, more civil and, hence, more productive. thanks for being with us. politics nation with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, michael. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, i'll second that. we're just three days away from history. president obama will be sworn in for the second time on the steps of the capital. and he looks pretty happy about it. take a look at his official second term portrait released today. that's a man who won a decisive election. who's proud of his accomplishment. yes, he's older than the man who appeared in that 2009 picture. but with his new grey hairs comes real progress. he inherited a country on the verge of economic collapse. and he responded by
on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
. harry reid, john boehner, all of the leaders. take a look at the flags being waved on the national mall in front of the u.s. capitol. i'm looking out at this picture. it is a huge, huge crowd. anderson cooper on is on the other side. not far away from the washington monument. from your vantage point what does it look like? >> it is an amaze sight here, wolf. you can see flags as far as the eye can see. former president clinton. hillary clinton. haven't seen much of her since she got out of the hospital. nice to see that she's here today with the former president. they make their way towards the podium where they will sit behind president obama and vice president biden as they are sworn in. we are going hear them announce when they walk in. >> like a school teacher. ♪ ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, the 39th president of the united states, jimmy carter and mrs. rosalynn carter. >> president carter and rosalynn carter stepping down. taking their seats. followed by all the former presidents who will be here. >> john king, something special about this. just the tradition of it all. it is all
aren't the ones blocking this. the democrats aren't the ones -- >> speaker reid, harry reid, the leader of the senate, he's all on board for this, right? just want to make sure. >> i think leader reid is fine with it. in fact, they put out a statement supporting what the president did today. >> in two years, republicans and democrats are going to be measured at the ballot box. a lot is going to happen but the biggest thing that is going to happen is we're going to have time to see what works. not more false promises. >> nothing works, alex. >> is the president, for example, going to start enforcing the laws that we already have? his attorney general doesn't want -- >> cookie cutter -- >> why is the nra and its supporters so much more effective politically than the other side in dealing with this issue? >> poke be with me with a stick. money. >> why are there democrats -- and the antigun types, they have a lot of -- >> no, they are not. i'll give this to my republican friends. they are always better organized on the issues like this and they raise the money and the nra is effective in sc
's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that ari is counseling at least on tv counseling republicans not to lead. look, that's easy for the republicans. they used to say -- ari and i are both baseball fans. the house controlled by the republicans are where good ideas go to die and that's apparently what speaker boehner is being advised to do now. i think it's a terrible mistake. he could come and make deals and meet the president halfway but it looks like i think they are going to go back to their constructionism. that's not a good strategy. >> all right. we'
leader says we should be, quote, very cautious when it comes to new gun control. harry reid is part of the president's problem here. there's a change under way in the democratic party. question is how big? after 2000 when al gore lost, they blamed losing tennessee, west virginia and other places on his support of gun control. now, some of that was exaggerated. that's what they thought. you saw democrats being timid on the gun issue after that. look at the 2016 lineup. vice president joe biden, governor andrew cuomo, governor o'malley. three people looking at the 2016 race on the democratic seed in the forefront on gun control. we'll see how big of a shift it. >> the vice president will speak first. >> please, please be seated. thank you. before i begin today, let me say to the families of the innocents who were murdered 33 days ago, our heart, our heart goes out to you. and you show incredible courage, incredible courage being here, and the president and i are going to do everything in our power to honor the memory of your children and your wives with the work we take ur here today.
's dialogue. >> the bottom line is that harry reid is concerned about asking democratic members, especially in red states to walk the plank on a sensitive issue like this. >> reporter: that's exactly it. a lot of people look at harry read and know that he is from a pro gun state. he's in nevada. he's a gun owner himself. but it's not necessarily about his politics or personal advocacy for guns. it the political reality that never mind the republicans, democrats, a lot of democrats who are in vulnerable, political situations right now may not want to do anything until, unless they think it can actually get to the president for a signature. >> dana bash at the capitol, thanks so much for that. >>> a spokesman for the national rifle association tells cnn there's been an unprecedented spike in membership. about 250,000 new members have signed up. for more on the challenge president obama faces on pushing comprehensive gun reforms through the congress, i'm joined by chief political analyst gloria borger. when you look at this in a nutshell, the question arises early what is better to sort of put
here. first of all, there was a lot of talk about harry reid, a senate majority leader, who's a gun owner. he's from the gun rights state of nevada. he has been very cautious saying that the senate should be cautious, but my understanding from talking to a number of sources is that he's speaking for himself but he's also speaking from the perspective of political reality, that there are a number of people in his caucus who would potentially really get slammed for supporting anything. so that's why he wants to take it slow. he doesn't want his people to walk the plank and suddenly not be the senate majority, lose the majority. but the other thing i think is really important to keep in mind is just how different this is. kind of taking it up to 5,000 or 10,000 feet. i cannot tell you how many times after so many of these tragedies, after one of their own gabby giffords was shot, calling up senate democratic sources saying, are you going to do anything? nope. nothing's changed. after aurora, nope, nothing's changed. n newtown changed the dialogue, the decision at the white house and he
, listener alert, this tuesday the 22nd, harry reid and the democrats in the senate are supposed to have a vote on a thing called the merckly amendment. >> stephanie: yes, and this is the one i prefer -- the mccain one -- [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: the merckly one is the good one. >> caller: yeah, we can't get anything done on guns or creating jobs on saving medicare, we don't have a chance to do that unless we make it harder for republicans to block the votes. >> stephanie: right. >> this is the biggest story of president obama's history to this point -- >> stephanie: that's right. >> caller: he is the senator from oregon and i want everybody to call their senator and tell them to vote yes to the merckly amendment. at least this would make it harder -- it would force them to talk. it wouldn't be silent and it would get more attention to maybe the media would actually be forced to tell people what is going on. >> stephanie: yes. and by the way a number of unions announced opposal to the amendment. the president yesterday. >> obama: hunters and sportsmen, if responsibl
senator harry reid went to pick up one as a mow moan toe, he asked him to put it down. he said here, he took a pen out from his jacket pocket and gave it to his senate majority leader and went off to lunch. >> bill: i'm sure harry has a collection of pens he's stolen from presidents. i don't know where to start. yesterday, as we said, just being up there so close and being part of that, in effect, being part of that ceremony. it was so exciting to be there. and to see it all unfolded. such a simple ceremony. very direct. not like a lot of royalty. people aren't dressed up in robes and that kind of stuff. and yet so sort of reflecting if you will, the common man. sense of who we are as americans was that -- with the whole ceremony. and it all led up to, of course, the most important part, the taking of the oath of office by the president given again by chief justice john roberts. >> i barack obama does solemnly swear. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> that i will faithfully execute. >> the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> a
